Dear Hannah Gibbons Families,
December is here! Cooler temperatures… disappearing daylight. The upcoming weeks can become quite overwhelming as families prepare for family gatherings, special travels, and perhaps some shopping outings in preparation for special traditions. December is a short month here at HG, but we still seem to pack in a month's worth of activities into a shorter amount of time.
As the time for our break approaches, many students find it difficult to concentrate on classroom related learning opportunities. While we want to acknowledge that this is an exciting time of year, and we certainly have lots of activities going on around the school, we also very much value the learning time December offers. We therefore continue to stress to students that these next couple of weeks are very important for learning and to remain focused on their work until December 20th.
We also want to take a moment to wish everyone a joyful and restful holiday. This is the time of year when many people take time to reflect on the things we are grateful for, as well as 'resolve' to change aspects of their lives. Whatever it is you are focused on this holiday, may it bring you happiness and fulfillment. We look forward to seeing everyone again in January well rested and eager to get back to the rigorous learning opportunities here at Hannah Gibbons.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at Gregory.firstname.lastname@example.org or 216.838.0750.
